Has orthostatic hypotension been observed in animals?  My yorkie has glomerulonephritis and hypertension.  Her vet had prescribed enalapril and amlodipine for BP control, as well as Epakitine for phosphorus binding.  She has had 3 recent episodes of falling to the side upon standing up, after which she appears dazed and disoriented.  She also has difficulty walking for a few minutes: she weaves back and forth, and has to catch herself to keep from falling. After 3 days of IV fluids, removing enalapril and adding aluminum hydroxide to her medication regimen, her symptoms have resolved. Plan is to continue subcutaneous fluids 3x/week.  We have not been able to pinpoint a cause, having pretty much ruled out seizure and stroke. Wondering if it could be orthostatic hypotension.
